Q: A: ### Quick Answer

**A pentagonal prism has five lateral faces and two pentagonal bases, which equal seven faces.** A prism has two congruent polygons that form the top and bottom of the shape. These polygons are referred to as bases. The remaining sides are referred to as lateral faces.

The lateral faces sides of the prism are composed of rectangles. Prisms are named based on the shape of their bases. A pentagonal prism has pentagons as the top and the bottom. It is a right prism since the faces of the rectangles meet the base pentagon at right angles. It has seven faces, 15 edges and 10 vertices.

- Q:
## How do you solve the volume of a right triangular prism?

A:A prism is a three-dimensional figure made of two equivalent parallel faces and rectangular faces that connect them. To find the volume of a prism, find the area of one of the parallel faces, and multiply by the perpendicular distance between them. You might need scratch paper and a calculator.

## How are a cube and a rectangular prism different?

A:The difference between a rectangular prism and a cubic prism is in the equality of the faces of the prism. All sides of a cubic prism are equal, while a rectangular prism's sides have different measurements.

## How many faces does a rectangular prism have?

A:

Full Answer >**A rectangular prism has six faces.**Unlike many other prisms, the faces on a rectangular prism are all rectangles. For instance, a trapezoidal prism has two faces that are trapezoids while the other faces are rectangles.Filed Under:
